I think you would want something more like
rtx va_r = expand_expr (valist, NULL_RTX, VOIDmode, EXPAND_WRITE);
convert_move (va_r, nextarg, 0);
but other than that I don't see why this would fail. I think you
should give it a try. Of course you would need to test it on a
backend which does not #define EXPAND_BUILTIN_VA_START; I think ARM is
the only primary platform for which that is true.
